Shop Info

We are also closed Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve + Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve + New Year’s Day.

Important: Like many bridal salons, our shop is not an appropriate place for large groups, babies or children, so please note the following when preparing for your appointment:

  1. We limit each bride/client to a maximum of 3 shopping companions.
  2. Infants and children under 14 are not allowed.*

*If any of your guests have children, be sure to inform them of our policy as well. (If you have a young boy/girl in your wedding and they’re in need of a dress/tuxedo, please arrange an appointment solely for them so they can receive special attention.)

This makes for a relaxed, stress-free and productive shopping experience for all. We are better able to answer everyone’s questions without confusion or misinterpretation, so in the end you receive the attention you deserve. We recommend bringing one or two guests whose opinions you value most, because we want to ensure you have the best experience possible, and the more opinions there are, the more overwhelming decisions become. This may not work for everyone, and we understand that, but we thank you for respecting us and our other customers by not asking us to make an exception.


The Hope Chest is located 30 minutes North of Minneapolis and St. Paul on the southwest corner of Hwy. 65 and 153rd Ave. NE in Ham Lake, Minnesota.
